Update on the fire, and a quilt block!

Update on the bushfire:

All good, Robin Hood.  It’s not out yet, it’s burning its little way through a sizeable chunk of forest, and I don’t want to think about the flora and fauna in its wake.  But it’s moved away from the houses and farms, and I am very grateful.  The change came through late last night and blew a gale, and I thought the world would end, but it blew itself out, blew the fire away from the houses and all is getting better.  Slowly but surely.

Thanks so much for taking an interest – it was pretty horrible yesterday, not knowing what was happening but I feel much calmer now.

So much so that I stitched.


We shan’t draw attention to the point that doesn’t match up, I’m fairly happy with this one.  It’s another six inch block that I posted about a few days ago.  If I make one a week, it’ll be finished in a year.  I’m pretty sure I can do more than that.

Hope your day is filled with quilting things!



  1. I just read your previous post. How very scary! Thank goodness you were safe. Hopefully no one in the community was hurt by the fires. Glad to hear the wind changed and the threat has passed. Will have to keep checking weekly on your block progress!

  2. Thanks corina,

    As far as I know, whilst it's still burning, no houses or lives were lost here. But who knows who many crops will be lost?

    Fires are horrible things.

    Thanks again


  3. Ya hemos visto por las noticias como van los fuegos.
    El bloque es precioso.
    Un beso.

  4. Thanks, Carmen :)

    Fires are finished with for now, hopefully they are all gone, though I suspect it won't be the last we see of them.
